Reviews

"The leading thinker about technology's corrupting influence on our collective psyche." * Newsweek *
"An elegant, thoughtful book . . . beautifully expresses the importance and experience of liberation from the battery-hen life of constant connection and crowds." * Daily Mail *
"A compelling study of the subtle ways in which modern life and technologies have transformed our behaviour and sense of self . . . The strength of Harris's argument lies in his showing how seemingly harmless new technologies insidiously influence our ways of being . . . Harris proposes ways in which we can discover ourselves within an increasingly digitally connected world." * Times Literary Supplement *
"I came away from this book a better human being. Michael Harris's take on existence is calm, unique, and makes one's soul feel good yet never once does he rely on feel-good techniques." -- Douglas Coupland
"A timely, eloquent provocation to daydream and wander." -- Nathan Filer, author of THE SHOCK OF THE FALL
